Last year, the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC) released a report entitled “Luzon Power Outlook: Determining the Adequacy of Power Supply for April-June 2022”, warning of a possible shortfall in the country’s power supply in the second quarter of the year. This 2023, the Philippine grid still faces the same threat.
The sufficiency of power supply during the summer season in the Luzon grid has been a recurring issue for several years. Despite the lockdowns and much lower demand during the pandemic, threats of grid alert levels and blackouts due to forced outages and deration of power plants had significantly reduced the power generating capacity of the grid.
